Manmohan Chandolu, the general manager of POCO, Xiaomi’s brand operating in India, shared a social media mockery with the launch of its first 5G phone, Realme X50 Pro, despite the lack of infrastructure, the biggest competitors in the country, Realme.
Realme, one of the most important players in the Indian smartphone market, launched its first model Realme X50 Pro, which has 5G support, although it does not have an active 5G infrastructure in the country. The new flagship of the Chinese brand comes with many impressive features such as the Snapdragon 865 chipset, X55 modem, dual-mode 5G and 90Hz screen refresh rate.
Shortly after the launch of Realme X50 Pro, Manmohan Chandolu, general manager of POCO, the sub-brand of Chinese technology giant Xiaomi, shared a statement saying that Indian users do not need a 5G phone.
Now that we have your attention. Just letting you know – we're here to give you everything you need, nothing you don't. pic.twitter.com/wdWYQMduON

“I just want you to know. We’re here to give you everything you need, not what you don’t do.”
The share of Chandolu’s personal Twitter account also shows that POCO is not planning to introduce any 5G phones in India recently. Meanwhile, besides the Realme X50 Pro 5G, another Chinese manufacturer Vivo’s new brand iQOO has also launched a 5G phone called ‘iQOO 3’ in India.

While the 5G competition in India is getting warmer, the POCO front thinks this is not yet a necessary challenge. Because the country has not yet met with the new generation network technology. Chandolu says that it is pointless to include a feature that consumers cannot use. You can find details about Realme’s new flagship X50 Pro 5G in our news.
